earth.google.com

This could go in a few threads, so thought to just put it here.

earth.google.com

It is a global map program.

It is pretty sweet.

Earth mapping tool. Along the line of terraserver but downloadable to your computer. You can get the plus version ($20) and import things to it, GPS location mapping etc...
Good stuff.

The "earth" replaces "www".
maps.google.com is the king of directions. You can put in an address and click "satellite view" and get the..well..satellite view of it :)

Not sure how it would be an invasion of privacy. You can get all the info you need from a license plate. If that's not invasion of privacy then certainly this isn't.

Raise your hand if you want a copy of Google Earth. Offline so it wont work until they reopen but if you want a copy raise the roof.
